ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Authorities were called to a wreck Tuesday afternoon that closed a left lane on Interstate 40 in northeast Albuquerque, according to TTN Albuquerque.
The accident happened on the eastbound lanes approaching Exit 160 to Carlisle Boulevard, near the city’s Netherwood Park area. It was first recorded by TTN at 2:35 p.m.
